Phantom body movement
Does anyone's body on their Phantom move just slightly?
Mine has a slightly wiggle, not when pumping just in general. The front screw is nice and tight.
It's not a big deal, or is it?

Shouldn't wiggle - are you sure you have the correct front thumb screw? I think I've seen a bit of wobble when someone loses the CCI thumbscrew and uses a Taso or other screw that bottoms out and doesn't tighten properly.

The o-ring that is set inside the thumbscrew helps to keep it from backing out. If the o-ring is missing, or worn then that might lead to the thumbscrew coming loose.
Hmmmm, this is a weird one. Unless the thread inserts (set in the body) for the frame screws have come loose, or the thumb screws themselves are loose (or are worn/stripped), there is no way the body should move in the least. When assembled, the Phantom should be tight as a drum.
Since I don't know why the body is moving, then I can't say if it's a big deal. All I know is that if the body is wiggling when it shouldn't be, then something is amiss.

Every Phantom I have ever owned, both new and used, have had a slight wiggle in the body. It prevented me from using any hopper larger than a Sportshot (too much weight up top makes it rock from side to side).

My phantom aslo has a little bit of wiggle in the body, it shouldn't affect anything. Mike recommends only finger tightening the thumbscrews but I tend to use an allan key, i've seen way to many phantoms fall apart on the field(mostly with undercocking kits)
At the same time be aware of how much torque your putting on it, I've known both phantoms and automags to be sensitive to how tight those screws are. Go till your sure it wont come loose during play and no further :P
